Stacy Keach’s screen time is short, but he dominates every scene he’s in.”
-Odie Henderson, Roger Ebert.com
““Stacy Keach does a nice turn as the sinister prep school headmaster.”
-John Hazelton, Screen Daily
“…Fine support from Stacy Keach (as a school headmaster who still has some fight left in him.)”
-Scott Weinberg, Scream
“On the plus side, we get Stacy Keach as some sort of preacher of the apocalypse.” –
– Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times
“Stacy Keach has a small role in the film and I’m definitely a fan of his and he does a great job with his small role.” -Rev. Rob, Blogspot
“TRUTH is both a thriller and a lament about the news and its age-old editorial dilemma- the need to be right, and first.”- John Anderson
“Almost everyone with Bush family connections in Texas refuses to talk, of course, but one key figure, the elderly and sick Retired Lt. Col. Bill Burkett (Stacy Keach), reluctantly provides Mapes with some incriminating information and a couple of documents to back it up. It’s enough to get CBS on board with her and Rather determined to report it…Supporting roles are all well filled, notably by Keach as the ambivalent and ailing key source”-Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
“Stacy Keach has a good cameo as the source who puts Mapes and Rather’s careers in jeopardy.” –Chris Bumbray, JOBLO’s Movie Emporium
“Pressured to get their segment ready in barely a week, the 60 Minutes team and seasoned anchor Dan Rather (Robert Redford, easy and dignified but very much in support here) raced to corroborate, relying on verbal assurances from chief source Bill Burkett (a terrific Stacy Keach) and underrating the misgivings of their document examiners.”- Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
“Stacy Keach shines in a crucial cameo.”-Gregory Elwood, HITFIX
“Two terrific speeches stand out. One is delivered for all it’s worth by Blanchett, who tells an investigating panel just how difficult and unlikely it would have been for someone to fake the documents. Another is heartbreaking. It comes just after a key source —Bill Burkett, played with great crustiness by Keach— has been put through the wringer on camera by a CBS team desperate to deflect blame.” – Jocelyn Noveck,Opiniononline
“Stacy Keach also scores as a key interviewee whose actions turn everything upside down.”-Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood
“Truth” is…showcasing an ensemble that feels impeccably cast down to the smallest role… Stacy Keach is at once pitiable and exasperating as Lt. Col. Bill Burkett, the National Guard veteran who furnishes the faulty smoking gun.” –Justin Chang, Variety
